Amlodipine is very good at reducing your risk of stroke. It may also lower your chances of having a heart attack. This is because it is very good at lowering blood pressure.
A study showed that the risk of stroke was 50% less for people who took amlodipine. This is compared to people who only took a sugar pill (placebo). Amlodipine was better at lowering the risk of stroke than other blood pressure pills, too. Some studies show it can also lower the chances of having a heart attack.
If you take blood pressure medicine, you are less likely to die from heart problems related to your high blood pressure. This is compared to people with high blood pressure who do not take medicine. Some blood pressure medicines are better at lowering the risk of heart failure than amlodipine. Heart failure means your heart can’t pump blood as well as it should. Still, it is better to take amlodipine than no medicine at all.
When your blood pressure is lower, your chances of heart disease, stroke, and death are lower. Amlodipine is a good choice to treat high blood pressure for many people. Your doctor may suggest it for you.
Less Pressure, More Health!
